"I went to the Silverton to campaign and arranged to visit the Oregon Garden Resort to hear my friends Tim and Kathy Crosby perform. Good musicians and song writers will have a room tapping their feet and laughing one minute, then choked-up and almost in tears the next song. Tim and Kathy have that superpower. It should be exhausting to ride that rollercoaster of emotions, but I think the combination provides a release from sadness and a moment of bliss. It's life and it is wonderful." Mark Wigg, Politician

“I enjoyed listening to your album! That's very authentic American style music. I really love the compositions, as well as guitar performance/arrangement and vocal performances!! I especially like "Someday I'm going to wake up" and "The house of rising sun". Your songs remind me of good old American movie soundtracks. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful album!”
